RMT Suspends Piccadilly line Strike as Significant Progress is Made

We note the report from our Regional Organiser and the progress made in talks, and that London Underground Ltd has agreed to extend the period of our ballot mandate by 28 days. We note that the R.O. and the majority of representatives believe that sufficient progress has been made to suspend the industrial action and we therefore instruct the General Secretary to immediately advise the company and our members that the strike action due to begin at 12:00 on Wednesday 4 December 2013 is suspended.

We remain in dispute and will call strike action should the planned talks not resolve this issue to our satisfaction. This matter is to be placed in front of us in the event of any developments and in any case in time to call strike action if necessary.

A personal letter is to be sent to all members involved.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised. Finsbury Park and Piccadilly & District West branches to be advised by personal letter.
